Strawberry Orange with Greens Smoothie Recipe

December 12, 2016

My smoothies reflect the season and what’s in my pantry and fridge.  This recipe utilizes the bounty of produce available this Winter from pears to oranges.  I’m running around town from one party to the next so now I am fighting a chest cold.  Cinnamon is known to boost the immune system and help cure chronic coughs and colds.

Enjoy this delicious drink as a meal replacement in the morning or post-workout to refuel your muscles.   Read about My Smoothie Philosophy:

Strawberry Orange with Greens Smoothie Recipe

2 Servings | Difficulty: CRAZY EASY

1/2 cup water
1 Cup Greek yoghurt
1 cup strawberries
Juice of half lemon
1 organic banana
1 cup packed baby romaine leaves
zest of 1 orange
1 sectioned, peeled orange
1 chopped pear
1 cup red oak lettuce
1 tsp pure vanilla powder
1 tsp cinnamon
a pinch of nutmeg
1/2 cup blanched raw almonds
pinch sea salt
1 cup ice

Put everything in order listed in a Vitamix or other high-powered blender.  If using a Vitamix, choose the “Frozen Desserts” setting and let that magic machine do the work!  Once the blender stops, check the consistency.  Add more water if you like a thinner smoothie or more ice if you want it frothier.

Jackie’s Tip 💡:  Save old water bottles or other reusable containers to make your smoothie portable for the whole family.  Use a funnel to avoid a mess.   Healthy on the go!
